I don't need a bunch of "Catch VD" billboards to get me excited for tonight's 'Vampire Diaries' return ... I caught VD a long time ago.
After a hiatus that felt way too long, the vampires, werewolves and residents of Mystic Falls are back (Thurs., Jan. 27, 8PM ET on The CW), and they're not alone. The show has become known for its generous sprinkling of cliffhangers -- often, as the cast is quick to point out, in the middle of episodes -- but nothing has been more anticipated than the arrival of the Originals, including yet-to-be-cast vamp Klaus.
I caught up with stars Nina Dobrev and Candice Accola to hear who they'd cast as the big bad vampire. We also talked about Tyler's big transformation (plenty more where that came from!), more werewolves coming to town and what time period Dobrev would love to flash back to as her fanged alter-ego Katherine. Want more? Well watch the video already.
